The decline of NYC talk radio

WOR is the most mismanaged station in the country. Who is station manager Lou Costello? First they allowed the legendary Bob Grant to retire and now they remove Ed Walsh in favor of Donna Hanover.

WABC is not much better the lineup after Rush, Shawn and Levin is a joke. It starts with Curtis Sliwa and Ron " Commie " Kuby in the morning. John Gamnbling is average at best. Then I can live without Laura Ingraham. Their best show, the John Batchelor show, leaves the air this week. Then it is the idiocys of Art Bell. Hey idiots, how about ditching Ron Kuby and running Curtis and Crowley. WABC also had Glenn Beck on the weekends and that would be better than some of the garbage they are running.

Who is running WABC? What do you expect from a Mickey Mouse outfit like Disney.

Heh. Art Bell is a crazy man, but sometimes I wonder about the folks he interviews. They're not all frothing-at-the-mouth conspiracy nutcases. I do think that they lower themselves to appear on his show, however!

Uggghhh!
I've listened to john Batchelor since the saturday before 9/11/001.
This is absolutely nuts.

This guy is popular among XM Radio owners down here in WNC, I hope he is picked up soon, like BEFORE we go into Iran...

I found your blog by googling the cancelation to see what others were saying.

The show was even better when it had Paul Alexander and Monica Crowley. It was far and away the best show on talk radio. It was a mix of politics, book reviews and inteligence experts.

I remember listening to Batchelor and Alexander in the NYC Blackout.
Obviously, the folks at Disney are off the deep end.

Beak, switch to Air America.

Ducky

Air America stinks. The only reason to listen to WABC is that they carry Mark Levin. Mark Levin kicks commie tail and is the true heir to the great Bob Grant.

That would make a heck of a movie, mr. ducky! Better save the idea for sweeps...

kuhnkat said...

Little Che Sucky the Cowardly Liar suggests we listen to Air America.

Beakerkin, you are much more polite than I will ever be.

My response to the Little Sucky is:

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Those MORONS don't even make decent HUMOR anymore!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Dream on Little Che Sucky

If a tree falls in the woods, and nobody is there to hear it, you have Air America.

beakerkin said...

Air America has even been downgraded in VT. ESPN took over their channel and now I listen to Mike and Mike in the morning. WABC's signal does not reach Northern VT, otherwise I would listen to Curtis and Kooky er Commie. Why does WABC employ Ron Kuby?

Well at least there is Mark Levin.
Get off my phone you big anti semitic dope.

What is Air America?

kuhnkat said...

Mr. BTIP,

It would have been better named Hot Air America. It was the lefts, that is, Al Bore, Al Franken, and other morons, answer to Rush and Conservative Talk Radio.

Their first big break was when someone discovered that they used a loan from a children's charity to help finance their FLOP!!!! Of course, this use of the charity's money should have meant jail for someone. It hasn't!!!

The usual methods were used to try and promote the thing. Al "Lying Liar" Franken and other hard left, third rate, Hollweird types were drafted to try and make things interesting. Unfortunately for the LEFT, no one, not even LEFTARDS, are sensory deprived enough to waste their time listening to the crass, inane, stupidity continually exhibited by the hosts!! It is rapidly shrinking and probably won't last past this election.

The real death knell is that not even Soros is going to keep throwing money down that black hole with no listeners!!! You know, like MR Stains blog!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Well, I had heard that the left was going to take on the talk radio market, in a non-government subsidized, different from NPR kinda of way. I guess they never got any airwaves out here where Ducky's food is grown.

uptownseteve said...

Air America ROCKS!!!!

kuhnkat said...

Keep listenin' Uptownsleeze. And don't forget to make sure all of your friends listen too. The 3 of you should have a lot to talk about!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Unfortunately for you, most of the WORLD agrees that Air America and its listeners are all boring MORONS!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

beakerkin said...

As we were saying nobody listens to Air America. Uptown made my point.

uptownseteve said...

Randy Rhodes whips Limbaugh's butt in several markets where she's pitted head to head with him.

Stephanie Miller's morning show gets great ratings here in the Washington, DC area.

She's smart, funny and kicks righty butt!!!

kuhnkat said...

Uptownsleeze,

whom, or what, is a Randy Rhodes??

None of the people here in San Francisco that I asked recognised the name. Apparently you are a minority of 2!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

uptownseteve said...

You're actually running the streets asking about Randi Rhodes??

You need a life buddy.

hahahhahahhahahahahhahahahahahhahah

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Hey! HEY!

No one here will speak another bad word of Randy Rhoads.

Air America better be playing his guitar solos through some Ouija board and crystal ball connection to Hell to beat out Rush.

I listen to Rush quite a bit. 2112 is one of my favorite albums of all time.

kuhnkat said...

So tell us Uppity,

how many minorities, not including WHITE WOMEN, are employed at Air America??

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I love it when racists always listen to whitey to tell them how bad off they are!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
